¶ Of David.Praise the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. Which forgiveth all thy sins, and healeth all thy infirmities. Which saveth thy life from destruction, and crowneth thee with mercy, and loving kindness. Which satisfieth thy desire with good things, making thee young and lusty as an Aegle.
¶ The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment, for all them that suffer wrong. He shewed his ways unto Moses, and his works unto the children of Israel. The LORD is full of compassion and mercy, longsuffering, and of great goodness. He will not alway be chiding, neither will he keep his anger forever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us according to our wickedness. For look how high the heaven is in comparison of the earth, so great is his mercy also toward them that fear him. Look how wide the east is from the west, so far hath he set our sins from us. Yea like as a father pitieth his own children, even so is the LORD merciful unto them that fear him. For he knoweth whereof we be made, he remembereth that we are but dust. That a man in his time is but as grass, and flourisheth as a flower of the field. For as soon as the wind goeth over it, it is gone, and the place thereof knoweth it no more. But the merciful goodness of the LORD endureth for ever and ever, upon them that fear him, and his righteousness upon their children's children. Such as keep his covenant, and think upon his commandments to do them.
¶ The LORD hath prepared his seat in heaven, and his kingdom ruleth over all. O praise the LORD ye angels of his, ye that be mighty in strength, fulfilling his commandment that men may hear the voice of his words. O praise the LORD all ye his Hosts, ye servants of his, that do his pleasure. O speak good of the LORD all ye works of his, in every place of his dominion: praise thou the LORD, O my soul.
